Hexoskin is the leader & pioneer in smart clothing and body sensing technologies. Founded in 2006 in Montreal, Hexoskin provides interoperable software solutions, secure and private infrastructure and data science services to support health research and professional organizations. The Hexoskin developed the only clinically validated smart clothing that allows continuous remote monitoring of the Soldiers & First Responders health status, that monitors cardiac, respiratory, activity, and sleep data with sensors embedded in a comfortable and machine washable smart garment.
The Hexoskin Connected Health Platform and Smart Garments allow the continuous monitoring of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and Sleep for First Responders & Defense personnel, to conduct longitudinal studies on Mental Health, Mental Disorders, Stress Monitoring, Operational Stress Injuries (OSIs), and Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) assessments.
It includes iOS and Android apps for real-time activity and health data visualization such as (ECG/EKG, Respiratory Rate, and Sleep metrics). A desktop data sync software allows the transfer of the raw and processed data to be managed and analyzed with the Hexoskin Online Dashboard. The Hexoskin Dashboard reports key measures and metrics such as RR Interval, Heart rate Variability (HRV) and detailed sleep metrics. Hexoskin also provides support and custom development to suit the most stringent requirements and standard for First responders & Defense applications.

The physiological parameters which can be monitored with Hexoskin consist of 1-Lead ECG, Respiration, and Activity. Additional metrics such as Blood pressure, Peripheral blood oxygen saturation, 3-lead ECG, Skin temperature, can be gathered using the Astroskin Vital Signs Monitoring Platform.
The user’s data is synchronized to secure servers for analysis and reporting. Our software tools offer custom functionalities to manage groups of people, including a comparison of activities between members of a group.
The Hexoskin platforms provides evidence-based data relevant in a wide range of research, operational and emergency contexts:
First responders must be trained to deal with a wide array of potential medical emergencies. Because of the high level of risk, stress and uncertainty associated with their position, first responder's mental health & physical condition can be affected.
Hexoskin allows to measure user's physiology during physical training, sleep, operations, and stress-inducing scenarios.
By providing state of the art real-time access to the soldiers & first responders’ biometric data, the chain of command is able to monitor their team to better allocate resources in operational and emergency scenarios with:
The Hexoskin specialized services consist of running an instance of the Hexoskin platform with a dedicated report functionality. Hexoskin can measure and report high-level actionable data such as stress, performance, readiness information, soldiers remote dashboard for command center, focus and cognitive assessment, stress and fatigue monitoring, mood status monitoring; energy expenditure and metabolism monitoring. The Hexoskin platform can report critical data allowing efficient training and decision-making supported by:
The Hexoskin Connected Health Platform is used by a number of government agencies. Hexoskin clients include the U.S. Navy, the Australian Defence Force, the Canadian Space Agency, and NASA. Hexoskin is there to support your team to manage the health of soldiers & first responders to provide continuous health assessments during training or in the field.
